HOUSTON (AP) — Derrick Bruce scored 25 points with five 3-pointers, Trayvon Reed added 17 points with 12 rebounds, and Texas Southern beat Alcorn State 85-70 on Wednesday night for the Tigers' second win of the season.
Donte Clark scored 13 points and Brian Carey added 10 points with nine assists for the Tigers (2-13, 2-0 Southwestern Athletic Conference), who made 26 free throws to the Braves' seven but were outshot 42.4 percent to 48.2 percent from the floor.
Rochester — Brailen Neely came off the bench to score 22 and dish off 13 assists, both career highs, and Oakland held off Texas Southern, 97-87, at the O'Rena on Thursday night.

The most intriguing matchup could be at point guard. Gonzaga’s Josh Perkins, likely with help from his teammates, will try to keep 5-foot-7 speedster Demontrae Jefferson in check. The Tigers’ standout averaged 14.8 points per game last season as a freshman. Jefferson poured in 27 points against Louisville a year ago but he made just 37.6 percent of his shots for the season. Silas Melson will probably see time defending Jefferson.
